The Science of Office Design and Project Management



Best 2014 Office Design and Space Planning

How can you improve your office space planning and design today?

Office design, it can make or break your business. When creating a new office or redesigning an office design, it’s crucial to have excellent project management throughout your office development or redevelopment.

Having a good office design and layout can truly improve the behavior of employees while enhancing their work productivity. There are so many office design tools available to create effective office headquarter designs that there’s never been a better time to start an office project.

What office design features make the best office impacts? Here’s a list:

  • High Ceilings. Studies have shown that higher ceilings can actually improve the conceptual thinking of employees for workers. For office space where math related tasks are performed, go for lower ceiling because low ceiling help promote better math problem solving.
  • For collaborative work, make office desks as close as possible. Research has revealed that the quicker the travel distance between workers, the more likely workers will interact with each other. If you want to promote more collaborative work in your office, try to keep the distance between workers less than 80 feet away. Anything more than 80 feet away, will reduce work conversation on a daily basis in comparison to workers that sit closely together.
  • Increase visibility. The more transparent the office design, the more your employees will interact with one another. This visibility can also help them better channel their creative thinking while improving the friendliness of the office.

But beyond these office design essentials, you need to assist your employees with peace of mind. You can accomplish this with a nature oriented office design because humans instinctively bond with natural elements through visual connections. Add plants. Have big windows and skylight built for the office to make the office brighter and more airy. Adding nature to the office mix can reduce stress levels while optimizing overall workers performance. From there you can identify what noise control systems are best for your office environment. Studies have shown that the threshold of distracting noise vs. distracting quiet is roughly around 70 decimals for the best flow of creative energy and work productivity.

Don’t forget to offer good balance of natural light and florescent lights in the office. The best lights for an office work environment are now warm lights because warm lights reduce work stress levels while boosting the cognitive performance of employees.
